About me

Hi, I'm Toby, an undergraduate and former Vice President of Jesus College Cambridge.

Hi, I'm Toby, an undergraduate and former Vice President of Jesus College Cambridge. I study Geography, having completed a year of HSPS (Politics and Sociology) and am passionate for my subjects as well as helping others expand their own understanding. I remember well the difficulties of preparing applications and for exams at school, in what can be a tough time for students. However my fresh experience of this is a great strength to my tutoring. I can offer first-hand experience of the struggles students really face, as well as the solutions that worked (and still do) for me during my studies. I am an open and friendly face to help students achieve the best they can, offering practical help and advice as someone who has jumped through the hoops before. Understanding the issues facing students is key to helping them get the best out of themselves, something I always aim to do.

Aside from academics, I throw hammer for the University and am currently preparing my dissertation research project on national groups and identities.

About my sessions

My sessions will be individually tailored to suit the student's needs. No two people are alike, so their lessons should not be either. I will focus on key areas the student want's to improve, focusing on answer technique to allow them to use their own knowledge to the best of their ability. Much of success in essay subjects isn't about knowledge - more about what you do with it, so my aim is to empower students to succeed in their exams through clear explanation and discussion of...

Toby was the perfect tutor. Not only did he always respond very quickly, he was dedicated and made detailed notes after every lesson. During lessons, he listened to me, which enabled us to discuss my personal statement, rather than just listen to what I am supposed to do. Furthermore, he was committed to me not only during the lessons, but has also helped me numerous times by responding quickly to short questions. I highly recommend him, especially for help in the personal statement! Thank you once again Toby!
